About Karma Cooking

I am Pagan and vegan since January 2012. While I am a huge animal lover, my choice to do away with meat, dairy and eggs had more to do with my health than anything. It's a choice I feel good about all the way around. I am studying to become a nutritional consultant and being vegan just meshes with that perfectly!
